And more importantly, it sounds like no LLVM dependency. This should take hours off a typical new desktop Gentoo install.

Depending on how adventurous one is, it may be possible to just do something like this:

Code:
EGIT_OVERRIDE_REPO_MESA_MESA=https://github.com/daniel-schuermann/mesa.git emerge mesa

Not sure if that's all you need, but it's what I saw Chewi do (that's a direct quote from IRC).

They did also mention it built fine for them, but I don't know more at this time.

Works great in Arch, shouldn't be hard to convert this pkgbuild to ebuild

well it is not necesary an abuild to install it,

just create this file:
Code:
 /etc/portage/env/media-libs/mesa-9999


inside the mesa-9999 file put this:
Code:
EGIT_OVERRIDE_REPO_MESA_MESA=https://github.com/daniel-schuermann/mesa.git


and then emerge -av =mesa-9999

and thats it
i was able to install mesa with aco
tested in Stalker Anomaly mod with DXVK and it gives a bit more frames

In Arch, vulkan libraries have to be uninstalled as well as mesa vdpau and vaapi libs.
Did you leave it if you had those installed ?

i leave vulkan as it was perhaps im missing something?, if you want you can test it, if it doesnt work for you, you just can unistall and emerge another mesa version, i was using mesa 19.1.2 until yesterday.

I will test it for sure, I'm playing one game at the moment with Vulkan and I didn't want to mess with it until I finish it, I'm near the end, should finish it tomorrow.
Though, conflict with Vulkan in Arch is probably the way that build works, it's probably installing it again after aco mesa, though I'm not sure.
Anyway, I'll test it with your method tomorrow.

I can't notice much of a difference, it's not bad but it's not better either.
Didn't test much though, 4 games, I think DeusEx Mankind Divided runs smoother.
I'll test later with fps turned on and with some benchmarks.

Test it with the new dxvk
https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases/tag/v1.3


is not game changer but it help a bit, they will continue improving, also in some games it help more than in others.

remember that this is testing they are going to improve for sure

Yeah I can't, I mean I'm going to have to wait for Steam to update Proton.
I don't have Lutris installed, just playing Steam games.

I did try some more games, DeusEx Mankind definetelly runs better, but that one is HEAVY shader usage game, so I guess that's where this aco shines really.
Max Payne 3 uses dxvk, directx 11 all max, runs pretty much the same.
Long Dark is the same, Grid Autosport, SOMA is the same.
Maybe I'm imagining but I think the graphics look better, I'm probably imagining that one :)
I think Doom BFG runs better.
That's what I have installed at the moment.

Anyway, this aco uses older mesa, don't know how much older, they don't say, they say it's just older version than current.
I'll have this installed a little more, try more games, maybe Witcher or something, but I'll be back with standard mesa, just because lol
It's not a problem to install it and test it again from time to time, until it gets merged with standard mesa.
